February 27 Monthly Newsletter
February has been a huge month for us with one particularly large announcement: we raised a $30M Series B and were featured across major media channels. We’re thrilled at the opportunity to reach more people with our products.
We’re making updates to our BTC and ETH rates, which will go into effect March 1, 2020. You will likely be affected by this change, so we’ve taken a moment to explain the changes that will be occurring below. 
As a reminder, we recently added support for the stablecoin USDC. Like GUSD, you will earn interest at the industry-leading rate of 8.6% APY on your USDC, and trade with no fees. Learn more about stablecoins and their benefits here.
Please note, BlockFi Interest Account (BIA) interest payments will be going out on the first business day of this coming month (March 2, 2020).
